Childish behavior is everywhere, and you know what it's getting us? Whiny kids without an ounce of ability to handle the world. You can just Tweet out something nasty and make your problems go away. You have to actually deal with them in the real world. This Trump/Cruz battle is just embarrassing on all levels. First off, I found it disgusting that the Superpac would use a picture of Melania to basically slut-shame her to Mormons. If you fall for that, Mormons, as if you're a better cut of human, shame on you. If I looked like Melania and lived in a crap country, perhaps, I may have used my looks to change my life. Don't act like you wouldn't. Someone actually said to me yesterday, "I have a daughter and I can't have her looking up to THAT as a First Lady."
Why? Because she fought for a better life the only way she knew how? How about you explain to your daughter why here are lots of prostitutes in the Bible -- even one in Jesus' birth line? Melania didn't get off for free, she's married to Trump for crying out loud.
When we start thinking we're better than others, we're doomed. People do things for a reason. This one, I haven't figured out:
Obama dancing the tango while Belgium has its 9/11 is vile. At least ACT like a leader and pretend you care. Is that too much to ask?
When did we stop caring about others and being willing to stand up and do battle? Not battle in the media, where we send some veiled barb, but actually standing up for those who have less? Those who are hurting? Trump's behavior with the attacks back, scares me. He needs to grow the heck up. Someone get him a copy of "Frozen" so he can hear, "Let It Go!"
I woke up to this headline: Emory University president says students are scared and 'in pain' after someone wrote 'Trump 2016' in chalk on campus

Seriously, what university president would go on record as saying its students are in pain over graffiti. Here, let me make it better of you, you special snowflakes. Let me get out my weapon of choice. A HOSE! What a bunch of losers.
Incidentally, Mr. University President, you need to learn the First Amendment. I'll print it here for you in case your ignorant university lost its copy.
Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Granted, this was graffiti. Albeit the washable sort. But afraid of it? Do you know what kids in other countries are afraid of? Real issues. Violence. Having enough to eat. Lack of healthcare. Maybe you need to get off of campus and go out and see the world. Scared. Just embarrassing.
We've lost some sense of humanity in this country and we're all losing because of it. Do we really believe the candidate who gets the best of a Twitter contest is fit to be president?
I blame myself. I watch "The Real Housewives of..." Everywhere and I'm part of the problem. These women act like spoiled brats who have no idea what's going on in the world. Why do I encourage them by giving them ratings? This week's episode consisted of one former housewife accusing another of wearing a wig. THE SHAME!!!
While the rest of them discuss if Yolanda REALLY has an invisible disease (Lyme's) I can't tell you how many times I've been accused of faking my own illness. (MS) I look healthy. I must be faking it. But the lack of empathy for Yolanda's illness -- Lisa Rinna accusing her of having Munchausen's Syndrome -- really got to me. Here's the thing, if you're not going to help her, Lisa, no biggie, but don't make things worse. It's NONE of your business. Why do people think it's their business to decide if another person is sick? I'm lucky in that MS shows lesions on the brain that cause the symptoms. At least I have MRIs as PROOF. But why should a person who is sick need proof? Just be there for them, or don't, but why judge?
Anyway, I'm writing this morning. I want to get lost in fake characters who actually CARE about each other.
